About the Course

Learn to dressmake in France or continuing dressmaking:

Learning to dressmake:
Techniques covered include: thread & use a sewing machine, sewing straight & accurately, preventing frayed edges, achieving a professional finish, cutting out, stitching a seam and a hem, using a commercial pattern – what do all those signs mean?

What you’ll make: Infinity scarf, pyjama bottoms, tunic top

Continuing dressmaking:
If you’ve made one or two garments already and now want to focus on achieving a better finish or perhaps to use a commercial pattern for the first time, you might like to spend a week here in France in my Sewing Studio. Maybe you’re self-taught (muddling through with the help of You Tube). Perhaps you’re someone who “used to sew”, but life got in the way, and you need some help in remembering your skills and boosting your confidence…
